Financial Aid and Scholarships
The cost of a college education is a matter of concern for many students and their families, many of whom would not be able to attend NYU without financial assistance. Regardless of your family's financial circumstances, paying for college will require a substantial commitment of your resources over the next several years. While the primary responsibility for meeting college costs rests with the student and the family, by combining the various types of funds available we use every method possible to coordinate adequate resources to enable you to invest in a higher education at NYU. Although NYU is not able to meet the full need of every student, we strongly encourage you to apply for financial aid immediately if you believe you will need any amount of financial assistance to make your NYU education possible.
Priority Dates and Deadlines
All students should apply for financial aid every year. Students who miss a financial aid priority deadline are still encouraged to file the FAFSA and will be considered for federal student aid if eligible, but funds become increasingly limited. If you have not applied, do so immediately. Remember, to meet the specified deadline your application, with all necessary signatures, must be received and validated by the processor and released to NYU by the date shown below for priority consideration.
Freshman Applicants: In order to be considered for NYU scholarship, you must complete all required applications by our deadlines. Please review How to Apply to learn which applications are relevant to you. Late CSS Profile applications will not be accepted for scholarship consideration. The FAFSA can be filed at any time to be reviewed for federal aid eligibility.
Important financial aid and financial literacy dates and deadlines are posted one month in advance below. For complete dates and deadlines, please see our Events Calendar.
